This warm and snuggly quilt is made using our sew and flip row by row method sewing through the back and batting all at the same time. No need to machine quilt after it's finished. The finished quilt is 45" x 60". Remember, Cuddle is so washable, and seldom stains so it looks great for a long time. I recommend using a batting if it is going to stay in the crib, but if you plan to use it for snuggling and dragging around, it is a wonderful soft blanket without the batting.
